Tonight, a group of WWE Legends will join the Hall of Fame in a ceremony to be held at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida, just twenty four hours before WrestleMania.

Four Superstars, a celebrity, and a legendary stable will be inducted tonight in a ceremony that will surely be filled with laughter and tears of joy.

Mexican luchador Mil Mascaras will be inducted by his nephew and former WWE champion Alberto Del Rio. Mascaras holds the honor of being the first masked wrestler to wrestle in Madison Square Garden.

Ron Simmons will be inducted by his former tag team partner John "Bradshaw" Layfield. The first African American World Heavyweight champion is also a former three time tag team title holder.

Yokozuna will be posthumously inducted by family members and WWE tag team Jimmy and Jey Uso. Yokozuna is a former two time WWE champion, two time tag team champion and winner of the 1993 Royal Rumble.

Mike Tyson will join the celebrity wing of the Hall of Fame as he gets inducted by DX members Shawn Michaels and Triple H. Tyson is a big wrestling fan, worked at WrestleMania XIV and considers his time with WWE some of his best in his life.

The Four Horsemen will take their rightful place in the Hall of Fame even though they never wrestled as a unit in the WWE. Dusty Rhodes will do the honors for Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Barry Windham, JJ Dillon and Nature Boy Ric Flair as they meet for the first time on TV since the Ric Flair retirement ceremony on RAW several years ago. At one point, the Horsemen held all the titles in the NWA as a group.

And last but not least, Christian will induct his best friend and Rated-R Superstar Edge in the Hall of Fame, one year after he had to unexpectedly retire due to injury. Edge is a seven time former World Heavyweight champion, former four time WWE champion, former fourteen time WWE tag team champion and winner of the 2010 Royal Rumble.
